Legacy revamps two Pilanesberg resortsMarch 7th, 2012 by Andrew Moth | Categories: hotels, industry, tourism
Legacy Hotels and Resorts has given a major facelift to both its Pilanesberg resorts.
Paddy Brearley, MD of Legacy Hotels and Resorts, says: “Just after the rush of the Fifa World Cup 2012 we decided to take a closer look at the Pilanesberg bush lodges and see what we could do to add to the allure of the properties, as well as breathe new life into the facilities.
“Once we had assessed both Kwa Maritane and Bakubung we drew up a plan to renovate and upgrade a number of the rooms as well as add new facilities that would enhance the overall experience of our guests.”
The décor of both resorts was also refreshed and the public areas now have a new look. In the rooms and chalets the revamp was similarly extensive and included new fabrics and linen and new fittings in the living areas. Many of the bathrooms in the rooms and chalets were completely revamped from wall to floor and now have entirely new fittings.
In addition, the lobby and reception areas have also been remodelled to create a comfortable space with new furnishings, scatter-cushions and tables.
The conference rooms at Bakubung were also remodelled and repainted with new curtains and recovered chairs to fit the overall décor changes.
Kwa Maritane now has a new spa and gym with high-tech exercise machines.
“It has been a mammoth task, as when we began looking at one area it just snowballed and all became part of a bigger project to ensure we maintain our status as the operator of some of the most desired and frequented bush lodges in the area,” adds Brearley.
“While there are still minor alterations and areas that need to be completed, the bulk of the work is now complete and we are ecstatic with the result.
“That said the proof is in what our guests feel – and the feedback we have received to date has been outstanding – from first-time visitors to our longstanding timeshare patrons – we couldn’t have asked for a better response,” Brearley says.
